The other night I couldn’t find a good book to read! So…. instead ….

I keep some clay at home for these sort of occasions! I used white stoneware clay and started building one of my favorite shapes with coils, on my dining room table!

I used the bottom of a Tupperware cake dish for the base.

Just two coils at a time, and the inside as neat as the outside always…

My favorite part! I find this stage so exciting because the way I choose to form the “neck and shoulders” can make or break the piece aesthetically. Adding a few coils every evening and this is how it looks a week later. Now for the decorating!
